Been feeling anxious and depersonalisation 6 weeks after smoking weed whilst drunk for first time in 6 years. Had a panic attack that night aswell?

Depersonalization: Some evidence that depersonalization/anxiety can result from cannibis use. Would want to know: what was the trigger for the panic? Have you experienced panic, anxiety, depression previously? Have symptoms improved any since you smoked? No real evidence that medication is effective for depersonalization. If symptoms continue/worsen suggest physical exam and possible cognitive behavioral therapy. ...Read more

I quit smoking cigarettes three weeks ago and I am concerned weight gain?

I quit smoking cigarettes three weeks ago and I am concerned weight gain?

Just don't smoke!: It's one of the biggest reasons why smokers go back to smoking: weight gain. It's because you are no longer getting nicotine-- an effective appetite suppressant and can mildly boost your metabolism. When they quit, people feel anxious and are used to having something in their mouth so they tend to eat more. Even so, smoking is so much worse for you than gaining a few pounds, it's not even close! ...Read more

How much damage can social smoking cause? I smoke about 0-5 cigarettes per month

That amount, not much: But very few people stick with smoking so few cigarettes for long (although some do). In fact, so few people smoke that little that I cannot find any studies of it, but the overall consensus is that there is a very low likelihood of problems (but not zero) with that low a level of exposure. Keep in mind that other low exposures (like second hand smoke) are associated with higher rates of cancer. ...Read more

I am a heavy smoker of both marijuana and cigarettes. After smoking marijuana, I tried to stand up and walk. My vision went black and I fainted.

Please stop/cut back: Fainting after standing is generally caused by low blood pressure and marijuana is known to lower blood pressure.
